Factors in Choosing a VNA for Microwave Applications in Manufacturing Application Note

Many microwave test applications do not need the level of performance provided by an expensive, high-end VNA. This is particularly true in production, where testing is typically not as rigorous as in device characterization and cost-of-test is critical. VNAs integrated into manufacturing test systems where S-parameter measurements represent only a part of the test list, may also require only moderate performance. This application note will examine these requirements and how they factor in to deciding which VNA is appropriate for a production environment. PN: 11410-01158

E-Band Based Car Radar Emblem Measurements Application Note

Automotive radar systems must operate in complex and dynamic environments where interactions with the host vehicle and its surroundings can have a significant impact on their performance. In particular, the material properties of the vehicle bumpers and location of the radar behind or within the bumper can impact performance. This application note will provide insight into the theory of frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) car radars, their application, and their placement in a car chassis. It will also discuss how various types of dielectric material in front of the radar antennas (e.g., antenna dome or color-coated bumper) influences the radar’s performance. This document will describe a way to characterize the 2D insertion loss of flat material slabs and logo emblems that are used today to cover the car radar sensors, and will present 2D measurements of the dielectric properties of such materials.

5G NR Sub-6 GHz Measurement Methods

5G mobile communications systems use multiple connections to meet the need for increases in mobile data traffic volumes as well as new functions such as ultra-low-latency. 3GPP determining the standards released the 5G NR non-standalone (NSA) specifications for making connections via multiple radio technologies, such as LTE, in Release 15 in June 2018. Release 15 presumes the use of frequency bands up to 52.6 GHz and specifies the band from 450 MHz to 6 GHz as FR1 (Frequency Range 1), and from 24.25 GHz to 52.6 GHz as FR2 (Frequency Range 2). FR1 assumes use of the same wired tests as conventional wireless technologies whereas FR2 assumes OTA (Over the Air) testing. This application note references the 3GPP TS38.104 and TS38.141 Conformance Test specifications, and introduces TRx test measurement examples for wired connections with sub-6 GHz base stations covering FR1 using the Signal Analyzer MS2850A and Vector Signal Generator MG3710A.
